The Ringling Causeway is a tall, long bridge that spans Sarasota Bay, connecting downtown Sarasota with Bird Key, St. Armand's Key, City Island, Lido Key, and Longboat Key. The bridge features waterfront parks at each end, as well as a pier and close proximity to Bird Key Park.
Walkers, runners, cyclists and even skaters relish the opportunity to scale its height and enjoy the unsurpassed view of Sarasota Bay and the surrounding area. Looking west, from the peak of the north side of the bridge, you can spot the Gulf of Mexico.
After dark, walking toward the mainland (east) down the south side of the bridge provides a fabulous view of downtown Sarasota, the buildings appearing to burst right from the water.
